McKonly & Asbury offers both an externship and internship program. These programs are meant to prepare students with realistic expectations about a career in accounting along with a glimpse into the culture at M&A. Andrew Puleo, a recent graduate of both the Externship and Internship program who is now a staff accountant, has this to say:
“The externship and internship here at McKonly were able to prepare me well for my first year as a full-time staff member. I’ve really enjoyed it thus far.”
Another recent addition as staff accountant to the team is Sophia Thomas.
“I had a great experience as an extern, intern, and then transition to full-time staff with McKonly & Asbury! As an extern, I was able to learn more about the firm culture, network, and gain professional skills. This set me up well for an internship where I was welcomed and encouraged to learn and work on a lot of projects. I believe I gained valuable experience as an intern at M&A that set me apart from some of my other peers. Now, as a full-time staff, I love working with my team and contributing to the firm’s culture.”
The program consists of events that take place in May through July. During the course of the events, each extern will be assigned a buddy – a McKonly & Asbury staff member. Registration for the 2023 program will open in the spring of 2023.
Throughout your time with us, you will:
- Gain valuable career information while shadowing your buddy and other staff members.
- Have networking opportunities with our team.
- Participate in professional skills development and mock interviews, receiving feedback from our leadership team.
- Experience our unique culture.

- June- Leadership Educational Mini-Summit
- June- Mock Interviews and Job Shadowing
- July- Program Wrap-up Picnic
